About

I have been a photographer working in Manhattan since 1999. Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, photography has always been a part of my life. From the late 1960’s until the mid 1980’s I played bass guitar in numerous rock and roll bands, mostly working in Portland, Oregon. I worked in recording studios for 10 years and toured with Johnny and the Distractions and blues great Albert Collins.  

In the 1980’s I left the music business and started a career in the National Park Service.  It was there that I planted the seed for my new life, photography. Within a few years a good part of my job as a Park Ranger included photography. 

In 1999 after a few vacations to NYC I decided this was to be my home and photography was to be my life. In 2000 I started a 5 year project at the American Museum of Natural History.  I shot thousands of digital images of the dinosaur fossil collection using a Mamiya RZ 67 camera body with a PhaseOne H25 digital back.  I also used Canon digital systems.  Most of the thousands of images shot can be viewed at http://paleo.amnh.org/.  I have been shooting digital for over 7 years.

Another part of my work includes music photography.  I am the photographer for Morrison Hotel Gallery in SOHO, NYC and have been documenting some of rock and roll’s greatest photographers including, Henry Diltz, Jim Marshall, Bob Gruen, Mick Rock, Elliot Landy, David Gahr, Danny Clinch, just to name a few.
